I’ve been thinking that those rumors of another high-ranking POW might have meant we had Izzat Ibrahim al Duri, the former Iraqi RCC Vice Chairman and suspected leader of the Iraqi resistance. It was reported a couple of weeks back that we had caught him, but the military quickly denied it. Since then, though, a lot of good things have happened.
But it turns out that it wasn’t the King of Clubs, after all. It’s someone nearly as sinister, though.
Florida’s weapon of mass stupidity, Steve Bartman.
He’s being kept in a secure, undisclosed location. No word on EPW status, but I don’t think anyone has ruled out torture at this point. A public trial in Illinois might get Bush some votes, though. Just a thought.
